Pregnancy Reflexology – The Benefits
Pregnancy is a very special time in a woman’s life, but it is not without its share of ups and downs, as the body goes through a lot of physical and emotional upheavals. Did you know that Pregnancy Reflexology can be an effective natural solution?
Reflexology promotes deep relaxation, balances the body’s energy and prepares the body for labour. Regular Reflexology treatments during pregnancy help to alleviate the discomforts that pregnancy can bring – both physically from symptoms such as morning sickness, lower back ache and puffy ankles, and emotionally by helping take the edge off the hormonal imbalance and bringing deep relaxation instead, allowing the nervous system to soothe and calm.
Treatment can take place during the first 12 weeks to support the pregnancy and alleviated morning sickness, or can commence from the 12 weeks scan all the way through to labour.
During their pregnancies, women may experience some of the following:
- General Pregnancy Discomfort Anxiety
- Shoulder tension and lower back ache
- High blood pressure
- Morning sickness
- Oedema, particularly puffy ankles
As you get closer to your due date, treatment can help to encourage the onset of labour and again, ease symptoms if you are over due.
Post Birth the benefits are as follows:
- Boosting energy levels and circulation
- Rebalancing the hormones
- Alleviating the affects of Post natal depression
- Rebalancing the emotional disruption that hormones can bring
- Stimulating bowel & urinary function Bringing relaxation and a little ‘me-time’
